something about the guns. the nra statement today is sadly and shamefully inadequate, calling for more guns and rejecting real action against gun violence. at a defining a historic moment for our nation demanding courageous leadership, the nra has declined to step forward as a credible and constructive partner. the proposal for more armed guards in schools may be helpful in some instances, but it falls short of the strong, serious comprehensive action needed to stop the kind of horrific tragedy that occurred last week. many police that spoke to me on that day when we take a said that the killer was so heavily armed that they doubted they could have stopped him. the american people are demanding real change. the nra proposal fails to offer any real protection from violence. members in connecticut and around the country are writing and calling me to say that the nra does not speak for them. it was a call for action. the nra has failed to answer the call. we need to do something about these guns, about the assault weapons, the kind that was used in the new town tragedy. i am very proud to join

time i checked the election results, he won and won comfortably. this myth that the nra can destroy political careers is just not true. >> it's not a myth that after the assault weapons ban was passed, there was a huge political price for democrats to pay. and nearly 20 years later, they don't want to touch the issues. >> well, it is true that they lost a lot of seats then. the cause and effect isn't quite so clear. and what happened then isn't what happens now. if 27 people killed -- 20 children isn't enough to change the psyches and the desires of the american public -- >> let's talk about this, mr. mayor. here is the reality. let's look at the weapons that were recovered from the scene of the disaster. you have this bushmaster assault rifle. this would have been banned under the assault weapons ban. the pistols, the semi-automatic pistols, were recovered. the medical examiner said they were not used. this information could change. but also we are now learning that these weapons were found and legally purchased by his mother at her home. >> she was in a rural area. you have them f

the po the nae association a. the nra, the organization that really stifles any movement. >> the power are in the swing states. it is where the president has to win in pennsylvania, ohio, illinois, wisconsin. it is very important that they have the ability to have a victory in those states. the guns are big in those states with hunting being bigger in those states. after the assault weapons ban the democrats got swept out in 1994. everybody thought that even after gabrielle giffords was shot. in 2011 is that something would happen and that portion of the law did not go through. >> what would happen if the nra still less political power? >> this is an effluent community in connecticut with and what is a fluent -- and what is one to happen in six months, two months? does the president make this a state of the union. this is something that only grassroots power is going to have a victory. right now, the nra has a lock on a house in the senate. if you look of the contributions of a photo collection, 80 percent of the contributions from the republicans, of the -- republican convention. >> a

of this past one, something passed and it was supported by the brady campaign and the nra. so you can come together on these things. i think you have to be really careful. there is not a lot of evidence that these laws stop these things. these are crazy people intent on doing them. >> you know, this is just not true. >> you're taking away other people's abilities to defend themselves. >> mary katherine, if you're selling guns in the woods of verge, believe me, there becomes a pipeline to the cities that leads to this kind of carnage and i think we as a country have to have an assault weapons ban and stop selling these large -- >> bill: i got to go. let me ask you one question. >> be honest about the fact that's what you want to do. in australia, they took guns away from people -- >> bill: hold it! hold it! >> you overreact. >> bill: hold it. i think there should be a uniform thing of all 50 states about who you sell to and information about guns. but juan, the thing about the semiautomatic ban, 300 million guns here. as mr. gottlieb pointed out, they're going to buy them and they're aroun
